The first question that comes to mind for most parents when they consider labor support is "What will hiring a doula cost?"
The day you give birth will be one of the most important and memorable days of your life. After having three births myself, I truly believe that the support a birth doula offers is an integral part of a positive birth experience, and one of the most worthwhile investments you can make! Below is a list of the fees at Embrace Birth Services. I invite you to contact me for more information if you would like to talk about ways to make the Winnipeg doula cost more accessible for your family, including flexible payment plans and gift certificates (Birth Doula services is a great idea for a gift registry!).
Birth Doula Services
Investment for complete birth doula services for 2018 is $650. A non-refundable deposit of $300 will be required to reserve your date. The remainder of your fee is due by 37 weeks. Payment plans or Gift Registries towards your Winnipeg doula cost may be an option, contact me for more details.
Currently accepting clients with due dates of March 10, 2018 and onwards. To ensure my clients receive the best care, Embrace Birth Services accepts a limited amount of clients per month. Contact me today to reserve your date.
Postpartum Doula Services
Postpartum doula services may be added on to your birth doula package for $25/hour. These visits will be booked in minimum blocks of three hours, up to eight hours maximum per day. Packages may also be available.
Different from a postpartum visit from your Birth Doula, a postpartum doula provides judgment free assistance with newborn feeding and care in the early weeks postpartum. These visits aim to empower you, while also providing a soft space to land in these difficult days when you just need a break. Your doula will address the practical and emotional sides of integrating a new baby into your household, providing assistance as you need it most.
With busier and busier lives each year, many families no longer have a close relative or friend that is able to offer support in the early weeks. A postpartum doula bridges that gap and can be a valuable source of information, resources and practical help. A typical visit may include guidance and troubleshooting with feeding or babywearing, snack and meal prepping, baby holding while the parents grab a bit to eat, shower or run errands and always comes with built in company and conversation - sometimes the most needed items for a new parent!
